Charred Onion Dip with Crudités

PUBLISHED ON: 02.02.2015

Shift your attention to the center……. “They are not crudités without a place to dip them”.

Tossing shallot, leek and scallions with olive oil, and salt then broiling until charred brings out the natural sugars and provides a mellow caramelized flavor which simply put is amazing.

For your next get together don’t forget the crudités platter.  My platter is very simple and was intended to showcase the dip. Don’t heistate to use vegetables that are in season, and ramp up the colors with multiple hues of vegetables.
